Emergent Literacy: Learning about Print before Learning to Read.
van Kleeck, Anne
Topics in Language Disorders, v10 n2 p25-45 Mar 1990
This article reviews the literature regarding the seeds of literacy in preschool students. Conclusions indicate that children learn many basic concepts of print communication from daily experience with its use well before any ability to decode writing emerges. Games and other everyday interactions with print are recommended for facilitating development of literacy. (PB)
